2/25/08: Kick Like A Girl


By Doug Fabrizio

Salt Lake City, UT – The Mighty Cheetahs had two undefeated seasons under their belt, and the team's coach decided it was time to find these third-grade girls a little competition. So the Salt Lake City soccer team joined the boys division. Filmmaker and coach Jenny Mackenzie has created a short documentary of the season, and the result is a look at what sports help girls and boys learn about winning, losing and playing your best. Monday, Doug is joined by Mackenzie and others to talk about youth sports and gender.
